Atop a twisting,  canyon-climbing road, a witch lurks in a fortress  built strong to keep out dragons and ogres. In  another part of the countryside, a young orphan is  maturing into a beautiful woman in the enchanted  village that is her home. Somewhere nearby, a young man  is seeking adventure after running away from his  family's small farm. Suddenly a strange and  terrible prophecy sets off a chain of events that will  bring these three together in the heroic, romantic,  and thrilling tale of an age-old battle.

Editorial Reviews

"[Teppler's books are] the kind that wrap  you in their embrace, that take over your life, that  make the world disappear."--Voice  Literary Supplement.   "Rich and compellingly readable. . .this may become a  classic in the field. . .Like [C.S. Lewis, Ursula  K Le Guin, and J.R.R Tolkein], Teppler takes the  traditional icons of a fantasy, restores their  resonance, and makes them her own."--Star  Tribune, Minneapolis
